LIVE MUSIC - THE SALES SEASON: Disappointing sales of gig tickets have lead to concert promoters in the US slashing prices for Cure, Korn and Ozzy dates. It seems that just after the punters woke up and realised concert prices were taking them for mugs, the promoters woke up and realised they'd been rumbled. A sign of the growing 'cut prices or we'll stay away' militancy amongst the public (or "the marks" as Ticketmaster likes to think of them) is Norah Jones being humiliated into dropping her tour to smaller venues. Oddly, Dave Matthews Band tickets are still selling as normal, but then that is to people who like the Dave Matthews Band.
